Arriving to “Punta Bandera” (canal where the wastes are disposed), Rigoberto Laborín agregó que esta zona era conocida como el mejor centro de capacitación de la paraestatal en México, pero quedó en el abandono, no obstante, comentó que la planta situada en esta zona estaba en perfectas condiciones en el año de 2003 y 2004. Laborín Valdez announced that a proposal from a company to build a wastewater treatment plant at no cost is being evaluated, where the Tijuana State Public Services Commission (CESPT) would sell the water to them and they would send it to the Guadalupe Valley.
